Meet the Huawei Mate Xs 2: The brand new foldable flagship smartphone on the block

Huawei has just announced its brand new flagship foldable smartphone, the Mate Xs 2, which is set to be one of the thinnest and lightest options you can buy.

Having a massive panel like this in your pocket unlocks plenty of capabilities, such as tablet-esque multi-tasking and a far better gaming and productivity experience. Huawei is looking to capitalize on this with a fully evolved design that packs improved internals, upgraded materials and a new, fashionable aesthetic. Now the event being held in Milan makes sense.

I’ll reserve full impressions for a full hands-on, but let’s be honest: this thing is gorgeous. The elegant unibody design boasts a flat, seamless fold that sits flush against the camera bump for a full wrap-around display.

Impressively, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 is the lightest foldable phone ever at just 8.9 ounces (for comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is 9.5 ounces). This has been made possible through ultra-light glass fibres, aerospace-grade titanium alloys and a super-light high strength steel developed by Huawei.

The screen is on a unique double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge Design, which stretches the display and flattens any potential bumps or ridges, to make it as flat and smooth as a mirror, which means you can make the most of that 7.8-inch True-Chroma Foldable display with a 2480 x 2200 resolution, high refresh rate and an anti-reflective Nano Optical layer. 

Keeping this screen running at its smoothest is a Snapdragon 888 chipset, thermally managed by Graphene liquid cooling for better heat dissipation. And in that camera bump, you’ll find a triple camera system with a 50MP True-Chroma main shooter with f/1.8 aperture, 13MP Ultra-wide with f/2.2 and an 8MP 3X telephoto with f/2.4 and OIS.

Plus, thanks to the wraparound display, while there is a front-facing snapper, you can use the main camera to take super high-resolution selfies.
